Daddy's Little Girl: Flowers For You

Good Morning Everyone!!

Since last few days I have been crafting a lot. But did not get sufficient time to share it with all of you!!.. So here it is!!

It was my Papa's (Dad) birthday on the 11th of August. And because I could not be there with him. I made a card so as to cheer him up. So, I thought of making the card bright and cheerful and hence, used neon pink and neon green colors. I also added matching pink colored flowers along with blue and golden metal flowers. I love lace as it gives an extra edge to the cards and so there it is..The pearls on the top and the bottom of the card were just the perfect embellishments i could think of. But the best part of the card is the lovely Wee stamp - Spring Bringer image. Its like the perfect image (flowers from his little girl ) that I could use to make my dad's birthday card. 

 I also took a printout of a lovely message for Papa (it says I'm his biggest fan and yes I surely am!!) and then gave it that paper tear and irregular effect and added the lovely flowers. 

 I hope you all like it!!
Please keep your comments pouring in as they are always motivating!!

Felt Pouches

Hello everyone,

I have been keeping really busy these days as there is just too much work. But that does not keep me away from my first love 'crafting'. And so, here I am with yet another post. I made these cute little felt pouches for all my sister-in-laws for the Indian festival of Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi as it is popularly known. I used it as a substitute for envelopes.

 Yesterday, we celebrated this festival here in India. The name 'Raksha Bandhan' suggests 'a bond of protection'. On this auspicious day, brothers make a promise to their sisters to protect them from all harms and troubles and the sisters pray to God to protect their brother from all evil. Sisters tie the silk thread called Rakhi on their brother's wrist and pray for their well being and brothers promise to take care of their sister. Also, the brother gives gifts to his sister either in cash or kind.

Wooden Hanging Frame/Card

Hello everyone!!

I'm back after a weekend!!.. This weekend I did a lot of crafting!! :) :)
But both me and Tanvi are tied up with a lot of work, hence, are not able to post as frequently as we want!!..
Anyways, have a look at some wooden frames which I made for some of my cousins..They are wood-based hanging frames which are made out of scrapped wood pieces and wooden shavings. Embellishments are added in the form of quilled flowers and leaves. I also added matching handmade paper in between the frame so that it could be personalized and used for writing a message!!.. Sparkle on the frames gives it the bling effect!! The hanging is made out of jute rope (but it is not visible in the pictures).

I made a total of 9 frames and each one was different from the other one as all the frames had different types and colors of quilled  flowers!!  This frame can be used for all occasions!! They can also be used as an alternative to regular paper cards!! 

Your feedback is always welcome!!
